Reached goals, new goals + new add-ons

Dear backers, 

I've put this important update together thanks to you guys! This is an update based on feedback, wishes and new experience. It's for you - my backers - the main reason for all this happening! 

Reached goals

Now that we passed the 600 backers mark, I'm able to include some more artifact cards, which is super cool. Furthermore with 500 Facebook likes, there'll be blank downloadable PDFs for people to print and create their own game items. 

New goals

Since Twitter wasn't really our cup of tea, I changed the viral goals to focus on BoardGameGeek and Facebook. 

Every BGG goal will give us more wallpapers with epic atmosphere for our computers and mobiles.

Every Facebook goal will be digital Print'n'Play items, non official components, that can be included in the game and spice up the fun. 

  • 1) "blank" PDFs, create you own components! (reached) 
  • 2) "Hero Agents", powerful agents that can be mixed with the regular agents. Incl. Kickstarter people and more. 
  • 3) "Extreme Artifacts", same concepts as the Hero agents. 

New add-ons

I've talked to many of you guys about add-ons, and I really want to keep it within scope and means of the production. This means the following has been added, which I think will appeal to many of you. 

  • 1 set of clear plastic stands (20 pieces for 1 set of units, so you can add according to how many extra sets you get). 
  • 1 set of systems (similar to the ones already in the game)
  • A concept book (30+ pages of cool stuff from sketch to final illustration in PDF) 
  • The first novel (20+ pages novel based on the Burning Suns universe in PDF)

These can all be added for £4 / €5 / $6 each! 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I really hope this is an update you've been waiting for :) Let's get those last percent and crush the £40.000 budget! 

Best regards Emil

Quote of the day - Senne: "I'm sure I'd tell my children that they made way better board games in the good old days of Burning Suns ;) And that they shouldn't be so excited about their holographic toys."

      #Stacie > Correct, you'll have to add them to the purchase (5 x 20 stands), if you want the figures to be on stands.
      I'll update with pictures and stuff, as soon as I have some. Right now I'm still working on the stands layout. But I want to keep you guys up to date, as much as possible.
      Thanks for asking Stacie! :)

      Above you say that one add on for 20 clear plastic stands is like for one additional purchased unit set so does the game come with enough clear plastic stands for all the units that are going to be coming in the base game or if we want these clear plastic stands for those base game unit sets (which are 5 I believe) than we'd need to get 5 sets of these plastic stands for them?

      Also, can we see a picture of what these ships will look like on these plastic stands?

      Sure thing Bruce, sounds great!
      Thanks a lot.
      We can take that up once I have the whole plan of backers laid out :)

      BTW, if you're looking for people to go around to gaming stores and demo the game, I want in!

      Looks really awesome. Player-screen is not for this game though.
      There will be some player aids - I just haven't figured out the format yet.

    6. Robert C. on

      And what do You think about add player screens with a brief summary of rules? maybe with plastic stand somethink as this http://www.sklep-onyks.pl/userdata/gfx/5e0f5beeeb7c8e9dd909d936977e1a09.jpg

      Right, thank you for clearing that up. Anyway, some nice colony/controller models would be nice ;).

      #Leo & Eric > Those are actually stands for the NPC tokens, that's stands for the cardboard tokens not figures. I see the confusing, I'm sorry for that!
      I'll fix that during the day.
      #Nasekunibert > You'll be using your Troop Regiment tokens, which has a side with a symbol and a side with a Troop Regiment :)

      Hi, I might have overread it, but is ther a way to mark which planet/system belongs to whom?
      It would be nice to have some fancy collony models or something like that. If there allready are please disregard this comment, because it is stupid.

      @ leo - the add on is for those that want to put all of the ships on stands its a bonus that's not intended for the base game. The reason the base game comes with 15 is 3 for each of the 5 players to put the 3 die ships on. The non die ships already get set on top of stacks of chips and thus don't "need" stands but those that want them can do so via the add-ons.

    13. Leo Borg on

      @Emil Sounds all good :) About the stands, it says "15 clear stands, 10 NPC tokens..." under "WHAT IS IN THE BOX?" ... not 20.

    14. SunTzuGames 4-time creator on

      #Leo > There are 20 clear stands (for each flying unit in a unit set, 6+6+6+1+1).
      The reason why it's sold in a set of 20, is so that you can add the exact number for every extra unit set you might purchase. If I added 100, then you wouldn't be able to add up, if you just wanted 1 more set of units.
      You just add the right amount to the pledge, and I'll send a survey after the Kickstarter ends, asking exactly what you ordered.
      Then I'll be able to see if it adds up and is correct - and hopefully keeping it simple and straight forward from there :)
      Best regards Emil

      Is it just to add the right amount to the pledge? How do I show that the extra amount is for a specific add-on?

      @leo 15 covers the die ships for all 5 players the other ships are stacked on top of chips and you most likely would not want these on an additional stand

    17. Leo Borg on

      Why just 15 clear stands in the base set? Why not have more of them, so it would cover all miniatures that could be in one game, as a stretch goal instead?

      Only 5€ for that many a complette set of the systems?
      WOW
